Anthony Tiger Ojeda was born in Oklahoma City on May 31, 2005, to Marlene Richelle White and Adrian Ojeda. On May 14, 2023, Anthony passed away at the age of 17 after a long and courageous battle with chronic kidney disease. Although his family are deeply saddened by the loss of this beloved soul, they are comforted knowing that Tony is now in Heaven, in the loving embrace of our Lord and Savior.
Tony was a proud and recent graduate of Crooked Oak High School in Oklahoma City, graduating with the Class of 2023. One of his favorite pastimes was watching NBA basketball. He was a big fan of the Golden State Warriors, Houston Rockets, Brooklyn Nets, and the Philadelphia 76ers, but he was always most loyal to his home team, the OKC Thunder. He especially loved attending Thunder games in person, and Tony and his dad were season ticket holders. He had a lifelong love of cars and had been a member of the Illegal Toys Lowrider Club since 2010, joining when he was just five years-old. Tony absolutely loved traveling, and he enjoyed the opportunities he had to go to car shows in Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas. He also loved opportunities to travel with Camp Kourage and Camp Cavett. The Cavett Kids Foundation facilitated group trips for chronically ill children. Through Cavett Kids, Tony was able to experience the beaches of Pensacola, Florida for Beach Bash Camp, and traveled to the Rocky Mountains when they had an unforgettable time white water rafting in the Rio Grande River near Angel Fire, New Mexico.
You could often find Tony watching his favorite movies – some of his favorites were Space Jam, Thunder Struck, the Toy Story movies, Shazaam, and he absolutely loved all the Chucky movies. More than anything, Tony enjoyed spending time with his family, all of whom he loved very much. He never forgot anyone’s birthday, always making the time to share special memories with each person he loved. He was quick to express his concern if someone he knew was under the weather or had passed away – he always paid his respects. The best thing about Tony though was seeing his smile and hearing his laughter. He had such a silly, goofy, and unforgettable sense of humor. Tony was a sweet and wonderful young man, blessing the lives of many during his short time on this earth. He will be very dearly missed by all those who knew and loved him.
Tony is preceded in death by his grandmother, Paula Ramirez.
Left to cherish his memory are his mother, Marlene White, of the home, and father Adrian Ojeda of Oklahoma City; four sisters, Adrianna White, Aiyana Williams, Adayla Ojeda, and Ava Ojeda; one niece, Amina White Ramirez; his grandmother, Pamela Lujan, and grandfathers Marlin Thompson of Pawnee, Oklahoma, and Miguel Ojeda of Oklahoma City. Tony is also survived by many more loving family members and friends.
